On The Road Official Trailer
On the Road (2012)
NEW! On the Road still [via: @KstewAngel]
This afternoon I had MK2 on the phone and they informed me (and I have asked many times if they were not mistaken) that NO official website or trailer on the road is not released before 2012. The reason is simple, the film is not yet ready. LJ l KSF
An adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s 1957 novel ‘On the Road’ has been on the cards for years. In the 1950s, Kerouac himself tried to persuade Brando to play Dean Moriarty, while Kerouac would have played his alter ego, Sal Paradise, in a novel that captures the heart and spirit of Beat-era America. Francis Ford Coppola has held the rights to the book since 1979 and tried and failed to get a film going with various actors, including Brad Pitt, Ethan Hawke and Colin Farrell. Finally, he hired Brazilian director Walter Salles on the back of ‘The Motorcycle Diaries’, and many of the team from that film joined Salles in shooting across North and South America in the second half of 2010. British actor Sam Riley (‘Control’) plays Paradise, while American Garrett Hedlund (‘Tron Legacy’) is Moriarty. The cast also includes Kristen Stewart, Kirsten Dunst, Amy Adams and Viggo Mortensen. Shortly after shooting, Riley told Time Out it was a hard shoot and other reports suggest that Salles took a guerilla approach, often improvising and making last-minute decisions to suit the story. Kerouac fans will no doubt await the film with claws sharpened – but will it attract a new generation to this mid-twentieth-century American tale? // Thank you, Laura!
